of why they're a great place to join. >> bob king, thank you, sir, mr. president, for joining us tonight. a lot of viewers are well younger because they don't remember the fights after world war ii and all that fight about right to work and whether states should have a right to pass these laws. make your case quite simply. why should a worker be forced to join a union? >> well, let's start out with the facts. no worker in america is forced to join a union. the national labor re-elections act say that any worker -- our uaw constitution says any worker who does not want to be a member, does not have to be. they still work. the question here really is do citizens in a community pay their fair share of the police, the fire, the snow removal, any of the services they get from that community? yes, they do. i want to ask governor snyder, is he -- >> no, no. bob, let me ask you the question. i know you had fun with me on that one. in other words, you have to pay the equivalent of the dues even if you're not a member of the union, right? you're forced to do it in order to work. >> you don't have
